'full-îcale' Hearings
In loyalty Probe Will
Begin Soon, Says Rees
By Joseph Young
House Civil Service Com
mitter *>'' begin full-scale hearings
Ehort'lv on President Truman's loy
alty investigation order, Chairman
announced today.
•Thf r» has been considerable
criticism directed at some of the
provisions in the order, and it is
r)!f purpose of our committee to
•xamine carefully the directive and
φ whether changes are necessary
to strengthen it," Mr. Rees declared.
While the objectives of Mr. TVu
man> order to investigate the loy
alty of Federal workers have been
arrlaimed generally, there has been
îwne feeling that there are too
.•nan y loopholes in the order that
orient it from being as effective
as it might be.
Safeguards Questioned,
on the other hand, the Ameri
ran Civil Liberties Union and other
iiiyral groups feel the order does
-iot contain sufficient safeguards
to protect the rights of Govern
ment employes.
Mr. Rees has been critical of some
Γ bases of the order, particularly the
part that the FBI plays in the in
vestigation. The Kansan contends
the agency will play only a "minor
nart" in the forthcoming investiga
tion and says he-wants the FBI to
take complete charge.
Criticism al.so has been directed at
'he part, of the order providing for
testing the loyalty of employes al
ready in the , Government. The
point has been raised that agency
heads have beep given discretion to
decide who shall be investigated and
what line these investigations
should take. . This might result in
non-compliance on the part of some
agency heads, these critics feel.
20 Million Needed.
A sum of $20.000,000 to $25,0PJ,000
Is needed to carry out the Presi
dent's order, and Mr. Truman is ex
pected to ask Congress soon to ap
propriate the necessary amount. The
fate of the request is expected to
rest largely with the stand taken
by Mr. Rees' committee.
Mr. Rees and most of the com
mittee members; agrep the loyalty
investigation is essential, but they
feel various provisions in the order
should be cleared up before the
money is appropriated. The hear
ings are expected to start within
the next few weeks.
Amonsr the witnesses expected to
be called are officials of the Civil
Service Commission, the Justice De
partment. the FBI, Federal employe
groups, as well as private citizens.

'Perpetual' Nelson Pension

Arthur Bliss Lane veteran career|

no chance for a peaceful settlement

He made this clear at a news con

"We should certainly strive for

"I am afraid they <t,he Russians)

He described himself as optimistic

It may be five years or more. Mr.

Mr. Lane said flatly that Poland;

He added that he would regard
Yugoslavia as in a position analo

He told a questioner "it may be
already too late to help Poland and
other countries which already are
under Soviet domination" in the
way this country still is able to help
Greece and Turkey along the lines
of President Truman's proposals
pending in Congress.
"We should not give assistance to
the Polish government to strengthen
its position over the Polish people.'
Mr. Lane asserted. He excluded
only "relief to prevent starvation."
He explained that he did not be

Funds Cut Increases
Job-Hunting Problem,
USES Aides Assert
Persane looking for work will have
a harder time discovering what
jobs are open and where they can
be found if House-approved cuts in
the United States Employment
Service budget ere voted by the
Senate, USES officials said today.
For the agency, the budget cut
would mean the 875 employes would
be reduced to 202. Of the 718 em
ployed in Washington, 516 would
be dismissed, officials said. Each of
the 12 regional offices would be
closed completely.
The House economy ax also cut
deeply into another Labor Depart
ment agency—the Bureau of Labor
Statistics. Ewan Clague, commis
sioner, said 700 of the 1,100 em
ployes here would be dismissed if
cute were upheld in the Senate. In
all, about 1,000 of the 1,700 would
be let go, he stated.
2,000,000 Seen Affected.
The more than 2,000,000 workers
who move from one pert of the
Nation to another as Jobs and the
seasons cal! them will be most af
fected of all non-Government work
, ers by the USES budget cut. They
include construction workers, lum
berjacks and food packers. Usually
they depend on USES offices for
information as to where jobs are
Restrictions imposed by the cut
would mean that State-operated
I USES offices would lack knowledge
: of job conditions outside their own
Packers and canners have come
to depend on USES to recruit a
large part of their labor. This
practice would be halted entirely,
; officials said.
Many employers in the past have
asked USES to find out whether
plenty of labor was available in a
place where they wanted to build
a new plant. Not infrequently the
USES report determined whether
the plant was built. Such service
will be strictly a thing of the past
if the cut is approved.
4 λ Βη·«ίο 1 Pfnenco m<·
Special programs designed to help
j veterans and handicapped workers
get jobs also will be eliminated.
Many veterans who will graduate
from college this spring will have
less chance of finding a job where
they want to establish their homes'
; than they would if USES were :
operating at full capacity, agency!
officials said.
A list of persons with highly sci-1
entitle and specialized skills Is kept'
by USES. It soon will become obso
lete because of lack of employes to
keep it up to date. This list, said
a USES statement, is "the only
national register of our scientific
manpower resources."
A Dictionary of Occupational
Titles, containing some 30.000 job
; descriptions and listings will be
I abandoned also. This helped em
ployers, labor unions and Govern
! ment workers understand exactly
what wa.s meant when a specific job
was mentioned.
77 Per Cent Cut.
The House cut· the USES request
for $3.912,000 to $900.000—77 per
ι cent. The Bureau of Labor Sta
' tsitics was cut from a requested
$6.675.700 to $2.373,000. The Labor
Department will go before the Sen
ate Appropriations Subcommittee
Monday in an attempt to have at
least part of the reductions restored.
If the BLS budget Is trimmed,
fewer facts and figures would be
gathered to show the condition of
unemployment in the country and
whether the cast of living is high or
The cost of living index, used by
management and labor to help de
termine whether wage increases are
warranted, would be issued quarterly
instead of monthly and would have
fewer facts. Mr. Clague said.
For Its present housing statistics,
which includes figures on the num
ber of dwelling units started and
; completed every month, the bureau
would substitute a national estimate.

Search for Third Man
Wanted in Assault
On 6irl, 13, Pressed
Police today intensified a wide
spread search for a medium-sized,
brown-haired young man whose first
name may be George, described by
a 13-year-old junior High school
girl as the third member of a trio
which criminally assaulted her in an
automobile Monday night.
Two other men have been arrest
ed and are charged with rape in
connection with the assault. Thus
far. police said, they have only the
girl's description of the wanted Than.
The two men arrested yesterday.
Matthew Musolino, 26, and BusseU
E. Powler, 22, claimed the man who
was with them Monday night was a
hitchhiker, unknown to them.
The victim said the third man
seemed to be acquainted with Muso
lino and Fowler, but she said the
others referred to him only as
"George." The third man seemed
to be about 22, she told detectives.
Attack Attempt Fails.
Meanwhile, a 19-year-old girl told
police she was grabbed by a young
man last night as she walked home
ward in the 1400 block of Webster
street N.W., but succeeded in frus
trating an attempted attack with
her screams and struggling in a
five-minute battle.
The girl, who lives in the 4300
block of Fifteenth street N.W., said
the man followed her from the
streetcar stop at Fourteenth and
Webster streets N.W. and threw her
behind a hedge. When her screams
brought out neighborhood residents
the man fled, she told police.
A check of police records today
revealed that Fowler has been ar
rested 13 times since 1937. while
Musolino has been taken into cus
tody six times. Both men are mar
ried and Musolino is a war veteran.
Fowler, who lives at 522 Tenth
Street S. E.. first ran afoul of the law
at the age of 12 when he was ar
rested in 1937 for investigation, and
later released. In 1942, atHhe age
of 17, he was arrested and released
three times on investigation, but
on a fourth charge of petty larceny
the youth was turned over to Juve
nile Court authorities.
Indicted on Konoery unarge.
The next year, Fowler was twice]
arrested, once for drunkenness and
destruction of private property and
once for robbery. The Juvenile;
Court assumed jurisdiction in the
first arrest but the grand jury in
dicted him on the robbery charge
and he was sentenced eventually to I
serve 6 to 18 months. Instead of j
serving the sentence, however, police
records show. Fowler was placed on
two years' probation.
The records indicate his proba
tionary period had barely expired
when he was arrested twice in 1945,
once for investigation and again on
a disorderly conduct charge. He
forfeited $5 on the latter offense,
police said. Last year. Fowler for
feited $25 on a simple assault charge
ar.d was again arrested for investi
gation but released.
He forfeited $10 on a drunk charge
last January 17 after he was ar
rested January 5 on a carnal knowl
edge charge. When the case went
to court, no papers in connection1
with the carnal knowledge charge
were reported and Fowler was dis
Wan Held for Grand Jury.
Musolino, who lives at 5720 Six- !
teenth street N.W., was held for
the grand Jury on January 5 this1
year on a carnal knowledge charge
involving a minor girl. At a hear- !
ing on the charge. Assistant United
States Attorney Andrew J. Howard ;
said, the mother of the girl asked ;
authorities to drop the charges
against Musolino because of the j
possible effect publicity would have
on her daughter's reputation.
The girl had a "vicious" black eye
By Constantin» Brown
Star Foreign Affairs Analyst
ISTANBUL, Turkey (By Mail).—
Some British officials in Turkey are
as concerned about the new Amer
ican policy toward Communism in
the Mediterranean as the Russians
are. Whether they represent their
own point of view or that of their
government is difficult to say.
Through friends in the Turkish
journalistic world, whose co-opera
tion they have obtained, these Brit
ishers are spreading the impression
that America is not entirely un
selfish in her determination to aid
the Turks.
They are glad that the United
States has agreed to assume respon
sibilities in Greece, but think Pres
ident Truman far exceeded Britain's
requests that the United States take
care of a situation which their gov
ernment could no longer handle,
namely in Greece. Turkey, these
British officials feel, is not directly
menaced and they consider that
America has overstepped the bounds
by injecting itself into Britain's
sphere of influence in the Middle
British Claim Defended.
The British regard President
Roosevelt's agreement, after the
Teheran conference, that Prime
Minister Churchill should handle
the Turkish situation in direct con
versations with Turkish President
Ismet Inonu, as confirmation of
Britain's claim to special rights and
advantages in Turkey. The British
further point out to their Turkish
friends that London never asked
Washington to support Turkey, ex
cept by supporting Britain diplo
matically as an ally.
There have been carefully veiled
attacks against America in some of
the leading Turkish publications.!
These attacks have been traced to'
at the time of the hearing. Mr. How
ard said. He was about to accede
to the mother's wishes when police
pointed out that Musolino had a
long record of arrests. Mr. Howard
said. He then turned the case over
to Assistant United States Attorney,
John B. Diamond III, who turned
the charge over to the grand jury
while Musolino was held in $2,000
The grand jury, however, ignored
the charge and Musolino was re- :
leased. Grand juries, which meet
in fecret sessions, never reveal the
reasons for their actions, nor do
they consider the records of accused j
in cases before them.

Britishers.who hope that the Lon
don government may continue to
exercise a dominating Influence In
For instance, an editorial printed
in a recent Sunday edition of one
; of the most responsible Turkish
! papers tried Indirectly to Involve
1 the United States In the forthcom
i ing parliamentary elections in Tur
! key. It accused the Democratic
Party of taking political advantage
of America's support of Turkey by
telling the Turkish people that un
less they returned a large number
of Democratic candidates to the
chamber, America would withdraw
her support. This, the editorial said,
was a most unscrupulous interven
tion of a foreign power in the do
mestic affairs of a sovereign nation.
Story Manufactured.
The interesting point is that none
of the Democratic Party newspapers
had mentioned, even by implication,
that America has any interest in the
forthcoming Turkish elections. The
story was manufactured by an edi
torial writer in order to slap at the
United States.
The administration, which fre
quently has been accused of sup
pressing the freedom of the press,
is not interfering with these attacks.
Active intervention by the govern
ment against newspapers has oc
curred only when the security of the
state was Involved; that is to say,
when Communists publish news
papers of the Daily Worker and
New Masses type.
The attacks by Communist-in
spired organs and those which serve
British interests are not being Inter
fered with for the time being, in
order to show the world that the
Turkish press is free in the western
meaning of the word. Moreover, re
sponsible Turkish officials contend,
the attacks make not the slightest
dent on the masses in this country.
